College in the High School
College in the High School (CiHS) is when a student may enroll in dual enrollment courses within their high school.
What is College in the High School (CiHS)
CiHS is based on a formal agreement between the university and the school district. Harrisburg University interviews and vets a teacher as a corporate (adjunct) faculty with the university. We then conduct a curriculum review to see if any high school courses align with courses at HU. This may require some adjustments to course material. Once completed, the courses can count toward credit for courses at HU.
High school students may take up to 11 college credits per semester, or 23 credits in a year.
The cost for approved courses is $100 per credit. There are no additional fees.
